ASUS 512mb 4650 $93 from MSY, with your dual core 1.8Ghz will run most games really well but with crysis it'll play it but at about 15FPS on 1280x1024but if ya chuck it on 800x600 it'll still hae good graphics and should play at, i dunno 25FPS

on COD4 maxed out it should do say 20FPS and on standard settings at 1280x1024 it still looks wicked it'll run at 70FPS

You could pay a little more for HD4670.

Would be my advice if you can scratch up the extra $$

Maybe Mr Rudd's bonus could help there!

You'd Want the 4670 MINIMUM for Gaming.

You want to upgrade, so Not having to turn details off atm is what your after.

Mate has a Dualcore 2.5, and a 4670, his COD4/5 is fluently fast enough @ 1280x1024>1680x1050.

Anything Higher and you have to turn ya details down.

$118 - 4670 isnt too expensive, That'd be my choice.

I dont know the nvidia Camp Maybe the 9600 Series Nvidia for $140

Your 1.8 DualCore may be limiting the 'bling bling' $$$400+ cards but with these you'll be right.

I would certainly go for the 4670 as a minimum, great little cards and much better then the 4650 for a few more dollars.

 

Nvidia camp would be the 9600gso for around that money but I think you need a 6pin power connector which the 4670 does not need.

Definitely spend the extra $18 above your budget, it may help with the next batch of games that will be release.
